So all of you out there in interwebs land—that is to say, my Twitter followers—have figured out that I’ve been a bit out of commission. I was hit by a car a couple of weeks back and have been recovering. For this reason, I have not been out and about in the fair neighborhoods of Williamsburg and Greenpoint. This post is among my forays, back into writing; but as I move back into walking for more than 10 minutes at a time, I’ll leave the street style shots to my dear friend and professional fashion photographer Chris Reed, the mind behind newly launched street style blog Might Like You Better. Chris was kind enough to let me suss out his blog pics during my (hopefully speedy) convalescence.
This random passerby as the blog post title suggests, on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, sports a simple, recession-friendly look avec black jacket over black pants; and with black high-tops at that. Come to think of it, it’s a similar look as sported by the young lovely in…
Black leather over black denim sets the undertone for this Swedish girl reading a Dutch paper on a sunny Williamsburg day.
The first shot was taken on Dec. 29; the latter on Jan. 11—both during the sign of Capricorn, known for a predilection toward basic neutral shades, as are black and white. Black is a traditional winter color; so these looks don’t seem too newsy, so to speak. Will this mean a wash of color on the streets of Williamsburg and Greenpoint during the month of Aquarius? Perhaps considering the dash of pink on this straphanger waiting for the G train-comme-shuttle on Sunday afternoon, we’re just edging towards a brighter palette this mid-wintertide.
Or if anything, a dash of color would be a festive touch to my birthday tomorrow.
